Summary

When her sister disappears, can Ellen Ryan keep her beloved niece safe? For the inhabitants of Liverpool's Milton Street a steady income and a roof over their heads are luxuries.

They're forced to turn to Conor, Jack's brother from Ireland, a man whose noisy joviality 17-year-old Ellen Ryan suspects hides a mean viciousness.

She's right, and with her mother sick and her half-sister, Annie, becoming increasingly feckless; it's down to Ellen to fight Conor's tyranny. But when Annie disappears, leaving her baby on their doorstep, Ellen begins fear for herself and for the life of the innocent child she has learnt to love.…

A great saga from Lyn Andrews

Another lovely story from this author but not the happiest of reads. The narrator was a bit annoying with accents at times but not awful.
